Why not consider taking a trip out o the ofce andholding the meeting outdoors or at another venue?
That is exactly what the CB Sustainable Travel Team did recently.The team were itching to try the new cycle hire scheme and withstands just outside the oce they were ready to ride within minutes.A suitable team meeting destination was decided upon and BarclaysCycle Hire membership keys were obtained in advance.The destination: the coee shop at the Victoria & Albert Museum.The route: via Hyde Park and other suggested Transport or Londoncycle routes. The dress code: smart casual with a helmet and handbagor two. Ride time: within 30 minutes to ensure we took advantageo the ree riding time. The usual team meeting in the oce wasreplaced by an exciting team bonding session, ollowed by aproductive meeting as team members were alert rom their aternoonbike ride. They were inspired by the cycle hire scheme and enthusedabout using it again. Some o the team are even considering using thebikes to replace part o their usual commute by public transport.I you’re based in Zone 1 or 2, try the new cycle hire bikes and discover your local area. Find a new place or your team meeting which willhelp inspire colleagues and inspire new ideas. For more inormationgo to:

CB’s cycling consultant Philip Loy undertook a 300-mile cycleride across Denmark in June to join the Velo-city internationalcycling conerence in Copenhagen. As usual, there was a wealtho inormation on know-how, projects, and general initiatives, andthe conerence had a wide range o practitioners rom all over theworld. Copenhagen itsel was a case study in cycle provision. Philipsays: “the extent to which cycle tracks had been built was impressivebut the most interesting aspect o their network wasn’t so muchwhat was built as the way drivers behaved at junctions, which wasexemplary! Everyone understood how the road network was supposedto work and there was a high degree o compliance by all road users.”Philip concluded the conerence by meeting some uture clients o CBin Cyprus (see article overlea).
